How to add DDNS rebind exception

    Hi everybody,

    I would like to use my NAS via DDNS. I set up everything and it is working from outside my lokal network. But as soon as I am using the same router as my NAS I cannot connect via DDNS but only via lokal IP.
    In the synology forum I got the hint to set up a rebind exception in my router. How can I do this with tomato? I am using version 1.28 on my Linksys WRT54GL v1.1.
    Best regards,
    Seb

    I don't follow.

    When accessing your NAS over the internet, connect to it via your DDNS hostname.

    When accessing your NAS over the LAN, connect to it via its hostname on your LAN (set up in Static DHCP on the router) or via its LAN IP.

    Thank you for your quick answer. And sorry for my late response. I did not see your answer until now.

    Your way works good if I adress my NAS manually. But I am uying it as a server for my CalDav data, and as a kind of dropbox server aswell. And in both cases I have to give one adress to my calender / explorer. Right now I can only since either if I am in my local network or if I am outside.

    I hope that clarifies my problem. And I hope, that you do have some ideas for rebind exceptions.

    Best

    Under Advanced->DHCP/DNS, add the following:

    Code:
    address=/<outside DDNS FQDN you want resolved>/<LAN IP of NAS>
    
    Then refresh your computer's DNS cache (in Windows, go to a command prompt and type ipconfig /flushdns).
